Operation In Wet Conditions
One of the most important benefits that Ventrac machines provide is the ability to operate on soft, wet conditions. The Ventrac 4500 tractor does something most traditional equipment can't: mow and operate in wet conditions on even the most delicate turf. A Ventrac 4500 has a light footprint, all-wheel drive, and floatation tires which help the tractor move across the turf without creating ruts or tearing out the grass by its roots. The articulating and oscillating FlexFrame keeps all four tires in contact with the ground, spreading out the weight of the tractor, and minimizing its impact on the wet ground. With the addition of the dual wheel kit, the weight is spread out, even more, increasing traction and further minimizing turf disturbance.
Mowing Across Wet & Muddy Ground
When faced with perpetually wet or low-lying property, it can be a challenge to find the right machine to tread the land. On this particular property, the owners were astounded at the capabilities of the Ventrac. Owning the land for 30 years, they have seen many different machines try to achieve what the Ventrac did on this day.
Gentle on Turf
Not only do the rear tires follow the path of the front tires, but the tires at the outside of the turning circle always travel at the appropriate speed relative to the tires at the inside of the turning circle.
Result: Reduced turf disturbance, helping you to maintain a healthier lawn.
Ventrac FlexFrame allows the 4500 tractor to both articulate and oscillate. These benefits allow the machine to crawl over terrain no matter how it changes, allowing more stability and capability to work on surfaces that aren’t perfectly flat.
Distribute Weight with Dual Wheels
Dual wheels are great for reduction of soil compaction on delicate ground. Duals are recommended where a broad distribution of tractor weight is desired.
